Where did Christianity come from?

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

Christianity has a long church history that spans 2,000 years, too long to cover in this format. Christianity describes a group of people that follow the words and practices of Jesus Christ. Their faith and trust are put into the claims and hope of salvation Jesus offers. They live out the Great Commission, Jesus’ command to His followers in Matthew 28:18-20.

In that case, Christianity began the moment Jesus attracted followers to his message around 30 A.D.

Christianity truly began with the Jewish faith, as God prepared a plan to save the world from its sins, through people like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David and Solomon. The sacrificial system of the Old Testament looked forward to a perfect lamb that would take away the sin of the world (John 1:9). Jesus fulfilled prophecies proclaimed through the Old Testament that he would be the Messiah.
